Even I have some affection for this song my idea of utopia would be the opposite of this song. I wish no women forgave cheating men. Married men who cheat should have their lives destroyed.

Tammy really brings tears to my eyes when she sings this particular song. The emotion of the different things Tammy (knew) and personally went through is clearly expressed in this song.
